Quadruple chocolate grasshopper cookies -- rich chocolate cookies packed with chocolate chips and dark chocolate chunks and topped with Andes mint candies.
I'm not going to go on and on about how rich, chocolaty and scrumptious these quadruple chocolate grasshopper cookies are when your time could be much better spent baking a batch of these to-die-for cookies. I mean, we're talking a rich chocolate cookie packed with both semisweet chocolate chips and dark chocolate chunks. That's triple chocolate right there! Then you add a creamy, chocolaty, minty frosting (of sorts) on top and you have some serious quadruple chocolate action going on.
It's a party in your mouth, believe you me.
The secret to that creamy, gooey topping is using Andes Creme de Menthe Thins. You place one on top of the hot cookies, wait a minute or two and then gently spread the melted chocolate mint candy over the top of the triple chocolate cookie. (I love a good angled icing spatula for this job!) Quadruple chocolate never tasted so good!
These quadruple chocolate grasshopper cookies are always a hit at parties and gatherings, so plan on doubling the batch if you want more than one for yourself. In fact, triple it and then freeze the extra before heading to the party. No one will ever know!
